I HAVE SOME 18 X 8 1/2 RIMS WITH 235/40ZR18 PIRELLI P7000 TIRES ON MY 1990 BIMMER. I WANT TO GO TO A 19 X 8 1/2 WITH 225/35ZR19. WOULD THIS FIT? WOULD A 19 X 8 INCH RIM FIT BETTER ( ie. NO RUBBING FENDER.) WOULD A DIFFERENT TIRE SIZE WORK BETTER. I WANT TO GET SOME HRE 540 RIMS, THESE ARE SOME REALLY NICE WHEELS FOR BIMMERS. ANY HELP APPRIECIATED, THANKS.

I ALREADY HAVE MY BIMMER LOWERED 1 1/4 INCHES WITH H&R SPRINGS AND I ALSO HAVE BILSTIEN SPORT INSERTS IN THE FRONT AND HEAVY DUTY IN THE REAR. I AM ALSO INSTALLING AN EREBUNI BODY KIT (NOT THE WIDE BODY KIT) AND REAR SPOILER. MY MAIN CONCERN WAS THE STEEL LIP AROUND THE FRONT SHOCK INSERT. THE 18 X 8.5 WITH 235/40/ZR18 SITS PERFECT WITH THE RIGHT OFFSET. ASSUMING THAT THE OFFSET IS CORRECT ON THE 19 X 8.5 WHAT TIRE WOULD HAVE THE SAME WIDTH AND DIAMETER AS THE 18 X 8.5
